About

The objective of the Psychology major is to provide students with a variety of courses and experiences that reflect the diversity of the discipline. The courses in the major aim to provide students with an understanding of the causes and patterns of behaviors, thoughts and emotions, with an emphasis on the formation of a scientific attitude and an appreciation for the complexity of the individual's role in society.

Psychology, the study of human and animal behavior and thought, is a complex subject that utilizes information, tools and ideas from a variety of disciplines.

Some of the topics psychologists examine include how people interact with each other, how they solve problems, how people's personalities differ, how children acquire language, and how emotional and family problems are solved.

One of the larger departments on campus, psychology faculty are involved in research projects as well as their teaching responsibilities. Internship opportunities are available in a variety of areas for students. Knowledge in psychology can be used in almost any career - counseling, research, therapy, medicine, education, social work or human services.
